Nature Center unveiled

More than 2,000 people attended the ribbon-cutting for the San Elijo Lagoon Ecological Reserve Nature Center on Saturday, Jan. 31.

Visitors listened as officials discussed the importance of the preserve – one of the few remaining coastal wetlands in San Diego County – and the work that went into building the Nature Center.

After the ceremony, people toured the $5.6 million educational center and partook of guided nature walks, live animal presentations and children’s activities.

The Nature Center is now open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day and is located at 2710 Manchester Ave. in Cardiff-by-the-Sea.
